If a mole appears suddenly and it is different to other moles you have, or if it has an unusual shape, color or uneven edge, it is important to act quickly.

Some melanomas can look like a black or brown streak beneath a toenail or fingernail, while others take on the appearance of a bruise that won’t go away.

Examine your skin regularly

Examining your skin on a regular basis will put your mind at ease, especially as treatment effectiveness increases if you find symptoms of melanoma skin cancer early. In fact, it is curable if treatment is started right away.

It is particularly important to check your feet, nails, genital area and scalp for any irregular bumps or moles, as these are places on your body that you tend to overlook. If you do find any moles that seem unusual, make an appointment with a dermatologist or doctor.

They can start treatment and offer advice regarding what to do to prevent skin cancer from developing.

Take precautions to prevent melanoma skin cancer

It’s definitely a good course of action to take precautions to prevent melanoma skin cancer from developing. The main culprit is the sun. If you love sunbathing make sure to use a high factor sun cream and sit in the shade during the hotter hours of the day.

It’s not worth having a tan if there’s the slightest risk of developing melanoma skin cancer, often a deadly disease. Always wear sunglasses too, as eye melanoma is always a risk. It is also important to be aware of the many symptoms, read useful information via the internet and take care of yourself. It’s worth it in the long run.
